    I did the preapproval thing for Apple Upgrade, so it only took like a total of three clicks once the store loaded. It was like a preorder for my preorder, so my phone and carrier specs were all saved. 256GB Space Gray XS. Woke up a 2:50, click, click, click, back in bed by 3:15. Easy as breathing.

    My kids are both out of the area in college/grad school. Plus one is an Android user. So itís down to me.

    That never stopped my mom. I haven't owned a Windows computer in a decade, and yet she still calls me for every computer issue she has with her limping computer, which she insists is "just fine" even though it can barely run MS Word.

    I think you’re the rookie, mate! I’m used to the old days, when if you didn’t get your order confirmed by 3:30, you could be stuck waiting for weeks or even months for delivery. It was a race to get an order in. Dual-tabbing Apple and your cell carrier’s website to see which one would let you in first. Since then, it’s just become tradition.

    I remember those days. Less stressful now.

    Still, there’s something to be said for tradition.

    Why do you get excited about new phones?! They've been basically the same for a good few years.
